Publisher's Summary

Waverly Sloan is a down-on-his-luck lawyer. But just when he's about to hit rock bottom, he stumbles upon a business with the potential to solve all of his problems.

In Waverly's new line of work, he comes to the aid of people in desperate need of cash. But there's a catch. His clients must be terminally ill and willing to sign over rights to their life insurance policies before they can collect a dime. Waverly then finds investors eager to advance them thousands of dollars - including a hefty broker's fee for himself - in exchange for a significant return on their investment once the clients take their last breath.

The stakes get higher when Waverly brokers the policy of the cancer-stricken wife of Lawrence Erickson, a high-powered lawyer who's bucking to become the next U.S. Attorney General. When Waverly's clients start dying sooner than they should, both Waverly and Erickson - who has some skeletons of his own to hide - are unwittingly drawn into a perilous web of greed, blackmail, and murder.

    "crazyness"

    There is a lot of craziness going on with this one, and I loved it. While walking the treadmill at the gym and listening to this book, I lost track of time. Some days I just sat in the car listening to this madness. I needed to know what would happen next. Needless to say I just bought three more from this author. The narrator hit it out the park, looking for more of his work to.

    "FANTASTIC"

    This story had me from the start. I love a good mystery and R.C. Bray is one of the best narrators I have listened to. I finished the book and went straight back and bought the next in the series

    "Pleasantly Suprised"
    Where does Buying Time rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I ran across this book by accident and I'm so glad I did. Great narration and great writing


    What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think Bray does a good job of channeling each character.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is definitely worth the credit.

    Story
    "A REAL LIFE FICTION!!!"
    What did you love best about Buying Time?

    Where do I begin.....
    Firstly, the controversial topic of focus represents situations that many people are currently facing. The decision making of all of the characters are underscored by power, greed, money, and morals. It's not only about survival, but also about the ways by which people choose to survive, and what they think they need to survive. All of those thoughts are challenged in this book.

    Just when you think you know what's going on, the author drops another bone in the pot! The storyline is full circle and the ending is not rushed. The pace never slows.

    The author had done her researched and is well equip to illustrate the complexities through her words.

    I love the narrator's voice...

    I just loved this book...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Waverly Slone.... talk about the king of misfortunate events. He is challenged through out the book, he is not depicted like a superman. He experiences the ebbs and flows of life and learns his lesson in the end.


    Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never listened to R.C. Bray before, but I would definitely listen to him again!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! Matter of fact, I usually work slowly through audio books, but not this one; I usually give myself a week or two, but this one I finished in three days.

    "delightful read"
    Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As usual, R.C. Bray delivers an excellent accompaniment to Buying Time. Well done!


    Any additional comments?

    I found this book to be a thoroughly enjoyable book. It is well written with good characters and a great plot. Brittany, a colon cancer sufferer, is brought into the story and it annoyed me as it was so incongruous, but how wrong I was! Even the romantic content was well done and believable. I fully expect that this book will be made into a great movie.

    I love books and reading but now never have time to. I love business, inspirational books, and some fluffy novels.

    "Unrealistic ending"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The first 3/4 of the book were great. I thought I was reading a John Grisham novel. The last quarter of the book was just a "Hurry Up and try to finish". Ending was unrealistic and very chopped up. I felt like several chapters must have been left out and they had a ghost writer glue everything together without even reading the book to meet a deadline.

    "Check the abridged"

    This was an interesting story, that at times had you fully engrossed in the mystery, however there were long sections, particularly those that focused on the relationship, that although important were longwinded and detracted from the important sections of the story.



    As the story progressed I found myself really connecting with the lead character, and found the story strong in terms of never seeing the outcome until the later stages of the book.



    I recommend the book, but would limit myself to the abridged version rather that the unabridged!
